Former Employee - Sales Associate/Customer Service in Slidell, LA

I worked at Harbor Freight Tools part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Better than average starting pay and good benefits. A good company to work for if the management was any good.

Cons

The management at the store at Slidell, LA wouldn't work with second job schedule. Told me she would, but as soon as schedule was made she told me to figure it out myself. Very disrespectful and rude.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs some kind of basic management skills. You cannot treat people like dirt and expect them to have any loyalty or be good employees. People skills are important.

    Pros

    Lots of tools if you're into that sort of thing. Good benefit package and pleasant work enviornment

    Cons

    Very hard to get a promotion to manager. They do not promote within but hire ex Home Depot people. Thinking of going to work for the Depot then reapplying to Harbor Freight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take a look at your staff in the bull pen waiting for a chance to manage. There are many talented people that you are over looking and for what?

    Pros

    Growing company. Good concept, need to resolve corporate growing pains.

    Cons

    Sr. Management has a revolving door of talent from competitors. They bring them in, mine as many ideas as possible, try to implement too many practices, and then fire the fallout.
